Herbal Iced Teas

Sweet tea made from black pekoe or green tea leaves certainly hits the spot on a sweltering summer day. But why not jazz things up a bit? A sprig of rosemary, a few slices of fresh fruit juice, a handful of hibiscus flowers and other fresh offerings from your garden and kitchen pantry add up to unusual iced teas that are sure to make a splash at your next backyard gathering!
